I would say this week we have learned the most from our study of World War II. We are using a lap book from Hands of a Child. Of course use being homeschoolers we are tweaking the program. As I have mentioned in the past Grace doesn't like cutting, pasting, etc. so we are just using the text and creating our own notebooking pages. Grace would probably say that Art Day Tuesday was her favorite part about this week.

I am linking up with Weekly Wrap Up and Its A Wrap

I really want to use the Who Am I from Apologia. Maybe next year. I have to figure out what my budget is for curriculum for next year. :)

Wow our weeks are so similar at times! We did coding this week too. Also Keilee did that same lapbook 2 weeks ago. She used to dislike cutting and pasting but now she doesn't mind it. I love how you listed all the things you worked on and accomplished. You did SO much! Happy weekend Diane. :)
